The Palazzo Te Foundation and the Palazzo Te Civic Museum in Mantua will be putting on three exhibitions and a programme of events this year celebrating the mythological figure of Venus. The Divine Venus project was inspired by depictions of the goddess in the Palazzo Te, and will feature loaned works by the likes of Cranach, Guido Reni, Titian and Dosso Dossi, not to mention many other works of tapestry, sculpture and printed materials.

The three exhibitions are as follows. 1) The Myth of Venus at the Palazzo Te, which will focus on frescos and stucco representations featured in the palace. 2) Titian's Venus Blindfolding Cupid, which will see the loan of one of the Villa Borghese's most iconic Titians to Mantua. 3) Venus: Nature, Shade and Beauty, an exhibition of international loaned works from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

The first and third exhibitions run from 21st March - 12th December 2021, apart from the Titian loan which will run from 22nd June - 5th September 2021.
